This is the current Swedish name day calendar, adopted in 2001 by a work group led by the Swedish Academy. The new list has no official status, but is nevertheless used by most publishers. Several name day lists existed after 1972, when the old name day calendar lost its official status. The new list will be updated every 15 years. Some of the names below are linked to the original saints or martyrs from which they originate.
